March Book Discussion

We will be discussing Absolute Power by David Baldacci.

We are meeting at Beauregard's Thai Room, for those of you that do not get downtown that often it is easy to find and park. Heading east on Cary you will see the parking lot on the right first. The restaurant is also on the right you have to cross one street to get to it. Just ask for the Book Club when you get there, usually we are seated upstairs.

Please remember your RSVP is very important! If you cannot make it please update your RSVP  even if it is on the same day as the meetup. We book the tables and the restaurant organizes their staff based on our booking so it is very important to get the number right.

Please let us know if you have any questions

    I really liked the book, too. And now I'm reading one of the other ones we voted on for this month, Disclosure, by Crichton. OMG, it's a must read; so so good!!

    I am on a budget and so eating out is limited and I am meeting with friends I had 30 years ago on Thursday, so I just want to come to the book discussion. What time should I get there for just that,

    March 18, 2014

    • Chelsea

      Robbin I think it would not work very well to just come for the discussion as it does not happen for a set amount of time at a certain time. We usually focus more on the book after everyone has placed their orders, we break into smaller groups to discuss the books based on table arrangements. If I can find discussion questions we use those as a guide to the discussions. I would say that socializing with the other members is as much a part of the book club as our book discussions.

    This was one of the best books we have read yet since I've been a member! Excellent! I listened to it on CD and the readers were great. Wish we had more of this genre.
    Sorry can't make it tomorrow - enjoy!

    I just checked out the RSVP page and saw that my name is listed 4 times. Is that just a glitch on my phone? I don't wanna throw off the count, but I'm not sure how to change it. I'm only one person! :)

    March 17, 2014

    • Drew G.

      Denae, you're only registered once, must be your phone

      March 17, 2014

  • Jeannie

    I will be arriving late. After 8....saw rsvp email....should I change to no or leave yes as I want to eat and have a seat but want to be respectful to restaurant.

    March 17, 2014

    • Chelsea

      Keep your RSVP as Yes and we will make sure there is a seat for you. Thanks!

      March 17, 2014

  • Sandra H.

    I started it one night and finished it the next day, so it IS a very fast read because you don't want to put it down!

  • São R.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and applaud the group's March choice. I'm sure there will be a fascinating discussion but I have a schedule conflict and cannot attend. See you next time! São

    First David Baldacci book I've read - thanks Richmond Book Club! I have really enjoyed the books I've read since joining!

      Pat, I recommend the movie as well, starring Clint Eastwood and Gene Hackman. The movie has a different ending than the book, but you will not be disappointed.

      Thank you, I will!

    I just finished reading the book and really enjoyed it. I had read the book a few years ago and had forgotten parts of it.

    March 8, 2014

    • Seenu

      Kathy, amazing that this was the author's first book of many other novels that are just as gripping as this novel!

      March 9, 2014

    • Denae G.

      I may have to check them out as well! I enjoyed this book!

      I had Thursday in my head and so I registered for a night class that starts on this day. I will be back in June after this one:)

    Wanted to update the group about an author event. We were expecting mystery author C.J. Box to visit Chesterfield County Public Library in May, but the date has been changed and moved up. The event will now be held on April 12th. Currently the location is set for Central Library on Lori Road, but the last time we had a big name author it was changed about a week before to accommodate a bigger audience. If you are interested, registration opens on 3 / 15 and you can get info by visiting library.chesterfield.gov and putting C.J. Box in the search box--the event will be the first thing that shows on the list. The event is free so if you are a mystery fan you might enjoy.
